If you're familiar with Angry Birds, you've most likely seen this image:
Angry Birds by Morriperkele

FUN FACT: This official Angry Birds promotional image that you see featured on the game's loading screen, the official website, and all over the web, was created by our very own Kimmo Lemetti (Morriperkele)!

I had a chance to talk briefly with Kimmo and his experience creating this image. He was commissioned by Rovio Mobile, the company who makes Angry Birds. According to Kimmo, he was given a very short deadline and the game was being released "within roughly a week."

How did Rovio Mobile discover you?
Morriperkele: I got hired to do this picture due to previous dealings with the CEO of Rovio Mobile, as I had worked with him before and he actually published my comic in his previous company.

What was the most challenging part of creating this image?
Morriperkele: Hardest part in creating the image was keeping it looking "fun enough," as the first sketches showed the birds with comically over-the-top rage faces on. With a lot of help from the art director at Rovio, [...] the picture eventually was finished long past the deadline. But that was sort of okay, as the release of the game was delayed by outside reasons giving me a bit of a grace period (thank god!).

_____________


A few weeks later, Angry Birds was released and instantly became a hit. The game is bringing in millions of downloads, lots of press coverage, and a ton of fans. The deviantART community loves Angry Birds, and if you don't believe it, here are 147 awesome Angry Birds fan art pieces:

Yes, it works. But it has a horrible lag and an awful add placement that makes some of the levels virtually unplayable
